About

Susie has exhibited in many galleries in Wales and England. She has also been invited to demonstrate and has sold her work in Australia, Hong Kong, Japan and the United States. She regularly gives talks and demonstrations. She is a selected member of the Makers Guild in Wales and there is always a range of her work for sale in their gallery at Craft in the Bay, Cardiff www.makersguildinwales.org.uk

She has chosen to specialise in making individual baskets and weavings from mainly hedgerow materials and in 1994 Search Press commissioned her to write a book to inspire others – Handmade Baskets – from Nature’s colourful materials www.searchpress.co.uk

Susie also makes felt bags and hangings from local fleece, combining it with carefully chosen pieces of driftwood, honeysuckle and ivy to create unique pieces of natural art. Landscapes are created by adding small quantities of dyed merino fleece and silk fibres into the feltmaking process. Sometimes her work combines both basketweaving and felt techniques.
